To be honest, doing the polar alignment at first is a pain: the little hole it has is woefully inadequate - but in the end after a bit of effort (and an AltAz adjuster on my tripod head), it was aligned. Not the most comfortable experience though.
The tracking was as far as I could tell very good, and you can't really beat the portability of that little thing. An it's twice as cheap as the Polarie.
All in all, I am satisfied of that little tracker for my use!

You might read the following thread regarding my experience with the nano Tracker from Sightron:
I find the small tracker quite decent for the price, the only downside is the subpar hole for polar alignment. This is why I added the alignment tool from the Vixen Polarie.

I own the skymemo and it's really good quality. I pushed it to 400mm unguided with good results. 200mm unguided is very easy.
